    The people. You will meet and work with some of the best minds in management and IT consulting

    New CEO has a vision to move away from management consulting and more into a products/solutions company. The transition has been difficult. Losing lots of talent.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My immediate "career advisor" is awesome Work from home Flexibility. I think they want to be better, but are just having a really hard time getting there. The offices are nice.

    Cons

    My immediate "career advisor" works very hard to insure we are happy and productive. Unfortunately her hands are tied. The corporate strategy is all over the board. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. The social innovation vision has not come to reality and they do not have any team in place to truly support any vision. There is no sales strategy or direction. The internal processes are completely broken. It's very difficult to get anything done systems. Horrible on boarding and unproductive. Lack of leadership that will be held accountable. Lots of layoffs, but not enough from the senior leaders that have been making the mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    First things first. If you're going to be One Hitachi, merge. It's ridiculous. We are competing against each other all the time. Hire leaders that have clear expectations and get things done. Too much managing up.

    Variety of work - You can work for clients in a range of industries

    Colleagues - People genuinely want you to succeed

    Cons

    Lack of ability to pick projects
    Skill set mismatch - You might be placed on projects that have nothing to do with your skills, experience, or interests
    Hours - Depending on the project and deadlines, you might work 60+ hours (however 45 hours is the norm)

    Advice to Management

    Improve feedback mechanism and offer better options to select projects that fit with career aspirations.
